St. Joseph Parish Church and Mandaue City Hall

Mandaue City is the industrial hub of Cebu. It is the home of probably 90% of the manufacturing companies in Cebu. It is vibrant and is still phenomenally growing.  Business establishments gobble up every remaining space available and traffic has become horrendous.  The price of progress indeed...

SM City Consolacion (Cebu)

It was a surprise when SM chose to build a mall in Consolacion. Located next to the vibrant Mandaue City, Consolacion is laid back and provincial. But personally, I agree that it is a good investment because progress is pushing Metro Cebu to move outwards the city center - northwards and southwards. And in the north, real estate developers have been developing housing subdivisions up to the towns of Compostela and even Danao.

For now, SM City Consolacon is more basically functional compared to SM City Cebu and perhaps to the coming SM City Seaside. Hopefully we look forward to a more varied choices especially in restaurants and shops.

Burger King - Ayala Center Cebu

Kit and I have a new favorite burger resto - it's Burger King! And judging from their full-packed house, I guess we are not the only newly converts.  Burger King in Ayala Center Cebu is located near the cinemas and the rooftop gardens. After our lunch, we walked about in the gardens because our tummies were quite full.  It was a beautiful day...
